    Default P/O H.A. Nicholson - 106229

    In Ealing and Old Brentford Cem., Ealing, Middlesex, lies buried with date of death 4-11-1941:
    P/O (Pilot) Harry Alec NICHOLSON - 106229.
    Is it possible this offr was injured 3-11-1941 on Wellington IC R3201 of 15 OTU (Chorley Vol.7, page 83).
    Unfortunately his name is not listed in Chorley's Vol. 9.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    I haven't read all the way down the old thread however.

    Was any one else killed on that aircraft and can we check their death registration district.

    Dennis,
    NICHOLSON's death registered was at Aylesbury.
    Wellington took off from Hampstead Norris for dual circuits and landings. Stalled and crashed 12.50h while approaching the runway finishing up amongst trees. No fatal casualties. Second crewmember injured was Sgt B.L. HOWELL.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Hi Henk
    It is possible that Nicholson was injured and died later somewhere else.The death registration at Aylesbury might suggest a death at Halton RAF Hospital, but there are several hospitals much closer to Hampstead Norris, which is near Newbury in Berkshire. There was a small civilian unit in Newbury itself, Swindon was reachable and RAF Wroughton(another hospital) was very close to it, so was Reading and they are all closer to the accident than Aylesbury. You would need to have a reason why he was taken to Aylesbury.
    Regards
    Dick
